In yet more proof that all obscenely wealthy people know each other, Ivanka Trump met up with Wendi Deng while sightseeing in Croatia. Apparently, they are longtime BFFs.
Ivanka is taking some time off the campaign trail and taking a break from her three kids for a couple’s vacation with her husband Jared Kushner. During their romantic getaway, Ivanka made time to meet up with the former Mrs. Rupert Murdoch herself in the scenic city of Dubrovnik.
Wendi and Ivanka apparently go way back. The Murdochs and the Trumps used to live near each other in the Trump Park Avenue building in New York. According to The New York Times, the Murdoch daughters would speak to the Trump’s youngest daughter in Mandarin, and Wendi would often come over for Ivanka’s Sabbath dinners. “She loves the challah,” Ms. Trump said of Mrs. Murdoch. “She calls it ‘that bread.'” In 2011, Wendi and Ivanka even collaborated on diamond friendship bracelets.
More recently, Wendi Deng was featured in a Vogue Magazine profile and Ivanka Instagram’d her support.
In that same profile Ivanka was quoted talking about her friend’s incredible generosity:
Everything she has is available to her friends, which, believe me, is not common. There’s nothing that doesn’t interest her, and she can hit five topics in a 35-second conversation. It’s really a whirlwind with Wendi. I can’t recall the last time I had a conversation with her that didn’t conclude with her connecting me to four people who might become great friends or great business opportunities.
Maybe Wendi was the one who set Ivanka up with that flammable scarf-making business in China?
Anyway, longtime pals or not, this news likely won’t help talk about Ivanka’s father’s close ties to Moscow. Earlier this year, anonymous rumors linked Wendi Deng to Vladimir Putin himself, with rumors swirling, Wendi was even spotted frolicking around the beaches of St Barts while staying aboard a $400 million yacht owned by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, a close friend of Putin.
These girls have been through a lot together. Ivanka stood by Wendi during her messy divorce with Murdoch. That marriage broke up partly because Murdoch’s son discovered diaries where Wendi waxed poetic about another world leader’s hot bod. Once again:
Whatever why I’m so so missing Tony. Because he is so so charming and his clothes are so good. He has such good body and he has really really good legs Butt . . . And he is slim tall and good skin. Pierce blue eyes which I love. Love his eyes. Also I love his power on the stage . . . and what else and what else and what else . . .
Wonder if Wendi is a Donald Trump supporter?
